This is a trial that I made some time ago, while processing my "standard" M42. It is a HRGB combination, on which I left the H data to flood the RGB, leading to a unnatural view, but with a noticeable detail on the surrounding area. Today I was cleaning some folders and found it, and I decided to post it here, better than going to the trash.

The equipment and adquisition data is the same as for my natural version:
